Rasberry PI is a good and cheap home computer

The Raspberry Pi is a credit-card sized computer that plugs into your TV and a keyboard. It is a capable little computer which can be used in electronics projects, and for many of the things that your desktop PC does, like spreadsheets, word-processing and games. It also plays high-definition video.
it's true, but I don't think I'd suggest it for just anyone wanting a regular computer.
I'm interested in something like a raspberry pi (cheap and low-power usage) for a 24 hour server. Something with more than 512meg of memory.

With their newest model they're sticking to 512meg of memory

Which one with more than 512meg of memory would you recommend?
There's quite a few with 1gig and more.

I'm guessing it's the "banana pi" as it seems to be called a Rasberry Pi clone
I have a Pi, it works fantastically for things such as 1080p video to your TV, a teamspeak server, a radio server, anything you can think of really. Windows is not necessary for a lot of these mundane tasks. however my OS has been corrupted about a million times now and I have no idea why. I guess NEVER take the SD card out.
Using raspberry pi as a desktop computer is okay. Office suits, browsing the net and even watching youtube videos and other video streaming website, programming and even electronic projects. The pi is a cheap but amazing device than can be everybody's favorite.
The newest Raspberry Pi 3 is definitely a fantastic lightweight low cost home server however their are limitations to what you can do but that 1gb ram is enough to run a fully functional webserver, though it would be slow under load. I have set mine up so that i can turn my bedroom light on/off from anywhere in the world. Something more useful though would be hooking up an external drive and running a home media server. Although you could use one as a basic homework PC you wouldn't want it as a full time computer although the high clock speeds and quad core processors sound amazing they like so many of the CPU functions your home PC will have.

You will likely struggle to watch a youtube video, It might however be better than 80% of the cheap android tablets out their if you make your own.
I think Rasberry pi is a future technology. If we can add memory, change the processor and other things, it will be very interresting for the hackers and for the future !
